    First, lets look at the most recent track record, the Afghanistan War.

    Afghanistan is a nation of a fairly backward population of 30 million who have only recently begun to modernise at all. The insurgency there consists of about 25,000 Taliban.

    The US has put about 100,000 troops there alongside about 450,000 fully trained and equipped Afghan national forces. One soldier for every 60 AFghans, roughly.

    So, outnumbering the Taliban nearly 20 to 1 and fighting for nearly twelve long years, we have been bled financially, morally and physically to the point that regardless of the likely collapse of the freindly regime, we are pulling out no matter what by end of next year.

    So the taliban will win and any honest analysis would show this.

    But here in the US, we have well over 300 million people who are tech savy and who own more than 270 million firearms and the ratio of Americans to US standing forces is like one to a hundred. And Americans have a highly trained cadre of experienced military that many of whom would be very effective at fighting a partisan war against a President that most of them hate and despise.

    Anyone who cant see the dangers frought with a civil war in such a context is either ignorant, stupid or a fucking traitor who wants to see our nation destroyed from the ground up.

    Amen. And you might want to note that they kicked the crap out of the USSR not so long ago.

    So...if anyone tried to take your guns away, the people would rise up and shoot and kill anyone who tried to take away their weapons?

    Why is a gun more important than a human life?

    "Why is a gun more important than a human life?"

    Guns aren't. But freedom and the US Constitution are. Many lives were spent to obtain and keep them.

    Please tell me - because from the gun nuts here, they don't seem to be showing much sympathy toward the dead kids, just about the thought of their guns being taken away.

    There has been overwhelming sympathy toward the dead kids. The only NUTS here are the ones climbing on the pile of dead children & using them for a soap box to take away our freedoms before their bodies were even cold or the facts have come out.

    Why wait until the facts come out? We know the facts - a gun was used to murder 28 people.

    Not at all. Had we reasonable gun laws concerning the types of weopons used in three shooting in one week in this nation, we would not be having this problem.

    The cold hard facts are that the assault rifles are designed and created for only one purpose, that of killing large numbers of people rapidly. And, as we have seen this week, they do that well.

    Why should they not have the same rules for ownership as fully automatic weopons? When you can empty a 30 shot clip in under ten seconds, is there any real differance? Especially in a crowded mall, or a school room?

    Simply require that any one with such a weopon outside their home be required to have such a license, and that if they do not, the weopon is confiscated and destroyed, and they face jail time.

    Second, if you store your gun carelessly, and someone takes it, you own any crime committed with it.

    Facts known. It was an AR-15, an assault weopon. The gunman had several 30 shot clips, all loaded with ammo designed to inflict maximum damage to the human body. They worked.

    There are huge numbers of these and other assault weopons in our nation now. And the number of shootings like this is on the rise.

    At the same time, the fruitloops here and in the NRA are claiming what is needed is more guns.

    Because human life isn't important to global elite like you.
